Little Bear is beyond excited. And Big Bear is, too. For the first time ever, each is sleeping in his own bedroom, as all big bears do. But when Little Bear snuggles down to sleep without Big Bear, everything feels different. Is that a monster he sees and footsteps he hears? Who's slowly opening the door? In this going-to-bed story beset by runaway imaginations, these brothers and best buds show their mutual care and concern for the other until both fall fast asleep. Pedler's illustrations in bold, primary colors practically leap off the page in a book honoring this childhood rite of passage.
